Damn Spring!

I have this stirring that central Indiana needs a R100RS out on the road, occasionally.

But I have no money! :cry:

I also have no garage, or even a shed.

Well.... lets face it. No matter what you ride, it ends up being two wheels with an engine rolling down the road. Yes a Graphite RS with nicely tanned, stainless exhaust would be pleasant; an old Suzuki Titan for a very small fraction will get you essentially the same experience.

Did you sell your cbr? I'm wanting to ride my Fargo more than my Beemer but my stupid new job makes it difficult and rare.

Yes, I sold the CBR last June in the midst of 11 months of unemployment.

edit: and I proved that either the CBR250R or ME is not a light-touring mount. Personally, I think my ass is toast. And I would need to spend 6 months to a year getting myself in shape before I would attempt another inter-state ride (and those are Eastern States! [small]). That would include a drastic change in diet and exercise. Hmmm...

Don't let the lack of a garage stop you. For years at my old place I had only a cover to protect my GS. Use a sock full of mothballs to keep the animals out from under the cover; you don't want to know what kitty-pee burning off of a header smells like. :shock: :shock: :shock:
